So I’m working on an enclosure and have some questions…
So my hope is getting the sound levels down quite a bit but it all seems a bit like a lost cause. A sealed enclosure is obviously the best but it makes me worry about temperatures, bushless and stepper engines don’t really like high temps.
Anyone have any data on the temperature ranges of the engines in the nomad pro? have anyone done any measurements (with and without enclosures)?
While I am going to ad a vacuum attachment that I guess, would ad a bit of airflow, it’s not like I have central vacuum so the noise is going to suffer quite a bit… (do shopvacs have better flow/noise ratios than “regular” ones?) My initial hope was to only use it when I mill dusty materials and ad a small quite air compressor for chip removal with other materials. What are you thoughts?
The sides? are they structural? since after adding my own enclosure I’m thinking they do more harm than good in the noise and temperature department.
Any fancy tips on vibration isolation for the enclosure floor-machine connection or will generous rubber pads be fine?
I’m going to use aluminium construction profiles, anti-vibration plates (that stuff for cars) and some foam. Any special ides for the walls? or should I just go with mdf or some fiberboard?
